Replaces original SD-only DeckLink model. Price: $395
Who isn't trying to save money these days? Blackmagic Design, always a good bet for delivering a favorable price-performance ratio, provides a lower-cost video-capture card to address your budget worries. While the 10-bit DeckLink SDI card offers fewer audio options than the DeckLink Studio card — announced at the same time — it also prices $300 less. Features include black-burst/HD tri-sync reference input, PCI Express connectivity, and RS-422 deck control.
